Genuine fragrances rebottled by an independent bottler, Perfumista. The fragrance is taken from genuine retail products and is entirely independent of the original manufacturing brand. Perfumista is in no way affiliated with, or working in any form of partnership with, the brand owner. All fragrances are 100% original but will not be supplied in any retail/branded packaging and no trademarks or logos will be used.
It isn’t because Francis Kurkdjian called this fragrance just plain Oud that he meant it to be a plain-vanilla oud. The man couldn’t be pedestrian if he tried. And what he’s gone and done is work what he calls “the ambergris of the 21st century” into a quintessentially elegant French perfume, taming the growling exotic beast until it purrs with pure bliss on a silk cushion.
This is an oud even the most ouded-out could curl up with. Sweetly leathery and animalic, with the touch of honey real oud gives off – and there is real Laotian oud in the blend. With its citrus and pepper facets, elemi resin adds sparkle to the top notes. Saffron brings out the leather effects of oud, set into the tenderest woods: the leathery, almost jam-sweet Atlas cedar, and a lavish, un-musty patchouli.
Francis Kurkdjian says he composed his Oud while dreaming of a marble and gold palace in the desert sands fit for “the prince of raw materials”. He’s done more than that: he’s turned oud into a flawlessly elegant classic of the perfumer’s palette.
All products are produced to order. We typically specify two clear working days from the date of order for production and dispatch on the third day for ALL orders. This is intended as a guide and production can slip during busy times of the year. If your order is time sensitive, please contact us for an accurate production and dispatch time frame.
Occasionally we may not have sufficient volume from a single bottle to complete your order. To avoid mixing bottles, we will wait until we have sufficient stock to produce all your order from a single bottle. Again, you will be notified by email if this is the case, and a full refund will be made if this creates an unacceptable delay for you.
